How a year has changed for Keith Mosfet.
Previously posted about him in 2018.
Looks like he did a complete 180.
Ditching the indie folk-rock to more of a angsty retro-rock sound with Superficial Hypocrite.
About the song:
“I wanted to write a song that would take the piss out of my generation and I.
Naturally, I went for the jugular of our fake Instagram lifestyle.
Putting a mirror to myself while also placing a mirror on the people surrounding me, “Superficial Hypocrite” is full of self-deprecating humour about the collective stupidity we’ve all fallen victim to.”

Toronto musician Drew Chale wants people to motivate themselves with his synth-pop song called Motivate Me.
Today he drops the single which is his first of many to come from his debut album which will be released in August.
Drew’s lyrics are inspired by life changing events, people, and imaginary stories.
Although his style of music is quite unique, this single grabs attention with its catchy melody as it is carefully blended together with Drew’s honest voice filled with true emotion.
With his release of ‘Motivate Me’, Drew will be bringing his synthpop vision to life with a motivational twist to the mix.
Have a listen to the song.
Don’t know how long we have to wait for new material from Caribou.
But Dan Snaith’s other project Daphni just released a new track based around Bermudian band Paradise’s 1981 track ‘Sizzlin Hot’.
From their album of the same name, released by themselves and largely forgotten until it was reissued by Frederiksberg Records in 2017, Daphni updates this lost gem for today’s dancefloor.
Made originally to be played in his DJ sets but now released (with the full approval of the original band) Dan quickly realised that he was on to something special: “From the very first time I played it on New Years Eve 2018, it lights up the room every time I play it. The hook is so immediate – people respond to it like it’s a song they already know and love.”
‘Sizzling’ will appear alongside 3 other tracks made to play in Dan’s recent DJ sets on an EP to be released soon.
